Topic: Data (computing)


  
  Data - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The Latin plural data is also used as a plural in English, but it is also commonly treated as a mass noun and used in the singular.
Such data are typically further processed by a human or input into a computer, stored and processed there, or transmitted (output) to another human or computer.
Raw data is a relative term; data processing commonly occurs by stages, and the "processed data" from one stage may be considered the "raw data" of the next.

 Computing - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Originally, the word computing was synonymous with counting and calculating, and a science that deals with the original sense of computing mathematical calculations.
"Computing" has come to mean the operation and usage of computing machines, the electrical processes carried out within the computing hardware itself, and the theoretical concepts governing them (computer science).
The discipline of computing is the systematic study of algorithmic processes that describe and transform information: their theory, analysis, design, efficiency, implementation, and application.

 Glossary of Selected Computing and Social Science Terms   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-11)
Often computers work with chunks of bits rather than one bit at a time; the smallest chunk of bits a computer usually works with is a byte which is 8 bits.
To "clean" a data file is to check for wild codes and inconsistent responses (see Consistency Check); to verify that the file has the correct and expected number of records, cases, and cards or records per case; and to correct errors found.
Thus it means the same as "card" in a card-image data file, and it means the same as logical record length in data files that have a logical record length format.

 Deep scientific computing requires deep data
High-performance computing is now being integrated directly into some experiments, analyzing data while the experiment is in progress, to allow real-time adaptation and refinement of the experiment and to allow the insertion of human intuition into the process, thus making it very dynamic.
Computational steering requires that a control channel to the executing service be open, that the execution process be interruptible, and that a new or modified plan can be submitted.
In the case of a data transfer, this may be the period of time from the point at which the user issues the command to transfer the data to the point at which the data is available for use on the target machine.
